I have to agree with you on that one hundred and one percent.Its a shame that industry has taking something as pure as Christmas and turned it and twisted it into a idealistic perversion.However, isnt it amazing how the true meaning of Christmas shines right through all the mumbo- jumbo BS. Enough so that even the most cold black heart of person seems to, in the least, appreciate and or acknowledge some degree of goodness? I just think it brings every one a little closer.
I hate the commercialization of the holidays.
Detest it with all my soul.
Does it really matter when( Jesus) if thats who you are referring to, was born. Honestly, no one knows the exact date Jesus was born. My personal opinion is that the Church did a wonderful thing by setting the date when they did. This date represents not only Christs birth but it is also the date the winter solstice occurs.(the Pagans celebrated this day every year as a "NEW BEGINNING") wonder exactly how many Pagans got duped by the RCC into Christianity on this day?
If I was to celebrate a certain persons birth it would not be in December it would be in September.
The Bible tells us exactly when He was born.
Six months after John the Baptist,who was born in March.

Yay! Good for you!
I still have a skeleton in my yard. Hopefully, I'll get around to taking it down this weekend. I'm such a procrastinator!
